Cardiff Met Ladies commenced their defence of the Welsh Premier Women's League title with a 4-1 victory away to newly promoted Cwmbran Celtic.
The league newcomers acquitted themselves well after finding themselves two goals down inside the opening eight minutes, Alison Witts and Ellie Sargent putting the reigning Champions in front. Sargent added a second ahead of the interval and although Alana Murphy reduced the arrears seven minutes after the restart, Abby Picton wrapped up the scoring with the final goal midway through the second half.
Llandudno meanwhile got off to a good start as they won 4-2 away to Newcastle Emlyn. Amie Todd twice gave them the lead during the course of the first half but the home side hit back on each occasion through Sam Townsend and Carys Davies to ensure the scoreline was level at half time. Stephanie Walsh put Llanduno in front for a third time just after the hour and this time they went on to seal victory, courtesy of a late strike from Katie Bowe.
The game of the day saw last season's runners-up PILCS win 3-1 against former title winners Swansea City. All of PILCS' goals came in the first half, Hope Suominen opening the scoring before Lyndsey Davies netted a brace during a seven minute spell. The Swans grabbed a late consolation from Lisa Owen, five minutes from time.
The other newly promoted side, Rhyl & Prestatyn, picked up a fine 1-0 victory at Aberystwyth Town. Both sides had opportunities to score but it was the visitors who took the points with a late goal from Zoe Stopford.
Honours were even in the other game as Port Talbot Town and Cardiff City FC battled out a 1-1 draw. Erin Murray gave City the lead three minutes before half time and they stayed in front until fifteen minutes remaining, when Sian Scannell earned Port Talbot a share of the spoils.
